To make the evidence about the vast and varied benefits of arts and culture more accessible, ANA released a series of factsheets based on the second Insight Report, ‘Transformative: Impacts of culture and creativity’.


The 7 factsheets explore evidence from around the world about how investing in arts and culture can affect seven broad societal areas: society and place; the economy; innovation; health and wellbeing; education and learning; international engagement and how engaging with creativity builds a strong cultural life across the nation.


ANA was established in 2018 with a $1.65 million commitment by The Myer Foundation, the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation and the Keir Foundation. The Australian Academy of the Humanities was the lead delivery partner for the initiative for the period 2018-2020, and these factsheets were produced during that period. These factsheets were prepared by A New Approach. They are reproduced here with the permission of the Academy.

The opinions in these factsheets do not necessarily represent the views of ANA’s funding partners, or the individual members involved in the governance or advisory committees.
